Lack of visitors and obvious radio transmisions to me means.. that there are no worm holes or ways to fold space etc.. so we may have other life out
there but we will likely never be able to reach it or them us in several lifetimes. It is possible though that someday we may pick up some radio waves
or some type transmissions from deep space but meeting is unlikely.
I think if there was some exoctic way for space travel faster than light then we would have visitors by now with the universe being so old.
It is possible though unlikely that we are one of the first intelligent life in all the universe or maybe even the only intelligent life...we may have
just been extreemly lucky that some gas merged in just the right sequence that eventually led to us...and only us...
We could also be the only planet that ever spawned life or survived long enough to evolve into intelligent beings.
Either way if you believe in other intelligent life then you should believe the universe is telling us that space travel is extreemly difficult over
long distances if not impossible.
